steps: 1. cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot co mozilla/js/src 2. cd mozilla/js/src 3. pkginfo |grep SPROcc (if you don't have SPROcc, you're going to have trouble compiling) 4. pkginfo |grep SUNWgmake (if you don't have gnu make, you won't be able to run the next command) 5. gmake -f Makefile.ref 6. cd Sun* 7. ./js expected results: js> actual results: (sun assembler) /usr/ccs/bin/as -o SunOS5.11_i86pc_DBG.OBJ/lock_SunOS.o -P -L -K PIC -D_ASM -D__STDC__=0 lock_SunOS.s Assembler: "lock_SunOS.s", line 1 : Syntax error Near line: "!

The file that's being assembled is a *sparc* file, and this is solaris for intel. Makefile.in uses: ifeq ($(OS_ARCH),SunOS) ifneq ($(OS_TEST),i86pc) ifndef GNU_CC ASFILES = lock_$(OS_ARCH).s endif endif endif Unfortunately, Makefile.ref uses: LIB_ASFILES := $(wildcard *_$(OS_ARCH).s) And the file is named lock_SunOS.s which will match for SunOS x86 too. I think the clever wildcard approach probably needs to be abandonned. I looked at uname and arch and it seems that the output formats aren't consistent enough for anyone to be able to build a rule from it.
Created attachment 234166 [details] uname output in case someone wants to consider it note that removing the lock_SunOS.s file from the directory will enable me to build.
I experience the same failure based on uname and lack of provisions for Solaris 10. bash-3.00# make -f Makefile.ref config.mk:150: config/SunOS5.10_i86pc.mk: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target `config/SunOS5.10_i86pc.mk'. Stop. If I create a config/SunOS5.10_i86pc.mk based on the existing config/SunOS5.5.mk, I notice the line: CPU_ARCH = sparc This doesn't apply on x86. Compiler flags and other variables being set to ULTRA_SPARC are probably going to be wrong for x86 also. I agree that the uname switching needs to be more specific. I am playing with the config file but this is outside my expertise. This will become a bigger deal as Sun pushes out more Intel boxes.
I believe some people have been running Solaris builds in the last two years.
